I started buying used blu-rays a few years ago and built up a pretty big collection, I definitely prefer it to streaming.

Has anyone made the jump to 4K UHD discs? I just got The Matrix, Big Lebowski, Blade Runner 2049, War For the Planet of the Apes, and Black Hawk Down. We're in the early days of a new format where you want to get movies you can really test your system out on. They all look great but honestly I was most impressed with Big Lebowski, I never gave that film credit for being visually rich, but I think it's because older transfers were kind of shit.

Have a few on my wishlist. Waiting to get Phantom Thread in 4K...I have the blu and it's still a little pricey for me for a double dip. I hear The Shining's new 4K transfer is going to be amazing. Will also definitely get Apocalypse Now when there's a price drop.

I have a few 4K discs. There aren't many that I want, but we're now starting to get some good catalogue titles on the format.
